Rose's Linzertorte is one that's been handed down for generations. Roswitha Seeman, one of our readers, shared this with me and I asked her if I could share it with you! This is one of the great traditional German cake recipes that's usually made at Christmas. However, it's too good just to save it for the holidays.
As you can see, this isn't a quick German recipe. But, sometimes, traditional just wins out when one really wants the real thing! (Check below to see if it's actually German!)
Now, some may say ... "This isn't German, it's Austrian," ... and you'd be right. The original cake comes from the city of Linz, Austria. Now it's a holiday classic not only in Austria, but also Hungary, Switzerland, and Germany.
This torte, also known by some as a Raspberry Tart recipe, can be made 'non-traditional' by using other jams. Cherry jam would be absolutely delicious! And I've got some Blackberry jam just waiting to be used as well!
I'm so glad to have gotten to know Rose -- even if it's just online!
She blessed me this year with her very own cookbook that she has written. And, YES, this Linzertorte is in it.

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!
Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety
Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"
